's frustration in the cabinet and on capitol hill. they are putting a republican in the cabinet. a defense secretary. and people feel sees disappointed folks and at a time how he'll define how to be his defense secretary. he's leading the department in a period of entrenchment. does he fight those? does he go along with the white house in trying to trim spending as much as obama would like. it's interesting to see how much frustration there is in the cabinet not just hagel, but also sebelius. one of the reasons when you have these incidents like you do with the health care system -- >> why is general frustration. inside the white house do they think they are incompetent. >> they are not living up to standards with hagel. he's kind of lackluster when they thought he would come in there and be much more forceful. >> why did they think that? if they asked anyone in his own party who was a republican for many years, maybe still is, if they watched his confirmation hearings there were signs that perhaps he wasn't -- >> lots of signs. >> up for it. >> you get into this rush, one you want to get
systems, with contractors, with high-ranking officials. different things within the defense department are usually cordoned off in situations like this. it is easy to chop the number of troops, easy to chop benefits. the one upside here is the pentagon is finally talking about long-term cost savings. they haven't had to. we're in a new environment. $17 trillion in debt. we've got to be more smart about how we spend pentagon dollars. but looking to commissaries as a place to start is the wrong place to start. let's look at everything but let's look at auditing the pentagon, finding the fat within the budget. let's look at the way we acquire weapons systems. there's billions in overruns and decades in delays in weapons systems. let's look at that before we look at military benefits and pay. >> i'm reading a third of the employees at these commissaries are military spouses. 30%. >> yes. >> that's another level of hits. >> these are community centers in many ways. the commissaries, the p.x.'s are the places where military families shop for a lot of different goods, where families work. if
considerations. so for us nuclear weapons have no place whatsoever in our defense. all of us in this region need to unite against a nuclear program that has been a threat to this region. we have all shared this view since 1974, that we need to establish a region free from weapons of destruction in the middle east. the only regime in the middle east that has nuclear and chemical weapons, and diverts international attention from the fact that it is a violator from the mtp and international instruments on weapons of mass destruction, and a violator of the most basic human rights of the palestinians, trying to divert attention from its inhumane policies. >> many wonder what is it that prompted iran to go for the deal. under former president mahmoud ahmadinejad it was a totally different rhetoric - the west is undermining the tenants of the islamic republic of iran. suddenly there's a break through. is it because sanctions were biting into the economy or from a political perspective, architects have been undermined. it was time to show the world. >> in iran we have political elections, popular electi

's bad politics. >> and a deal is in the works to end across the board sequestration cuts in defense and in social programs said to cut deeper next year. billions would get shifted. and a plan being hatched by house republican paul ryan and senate democrat patty murray, while both sides fight over extending unemployment benefits. the president today warned again that obama care will not be on the table in any of these because his plan, he says, is getting rid of, hoping to end one of america's worst disparities. i'm steve handelsman, news 4. >>> here is a live look at rockefeller center in downtown manhattan right now. >> in just a few hours the big christmas tree will be glowing with 45,000 christmas lights. >> sarah is joining us now with a preview. >> reporter: you're not joking. this is a huge tree. and all that is left to do tonight is to throw that switch. but taking you back to the tree's origins. it's from connecticut. it was planted 75 years ago. the family that donated it say they are happy to share it with the world, but they are a little sad to see it grow. it's now at 30
